Ok, so this is my local pub, so I might be considered biased. On the other hand, there are plenty of other pubs nearby, so if the Fighting Cocks was rubbish, I'd vote with my feet!
The pub is very traditional in decor and "feel," with beams, inglenook and an incredible bar made from a slice through a large treetrunk, complete with wavy, knobbly bits on the edge (all smooth and polished - no fear of splinters!).
The landlady, Pearl, is a fantastic cook. The ingredients are all sourced locally, with the meat from nearby Attleborough and some of the vegetables from the community farm next to the pub car park - can't get more local or seasonal than that!
The drinks selection is wide and varied, with Aspalls Cider on tap and some more unusual non-alcoholic drinks stored in the fridge. Rose lemonade is worth trying, if you haven't had it before.
The regular patrons are a lively and friendly bunch and the place buzzes with energy when busy. With a large carpark, outside seating in a rural setting, woodburner for chilly weather, good beverages and great food, what are you waiting for?!
